. president obama gave a preview to this decision this afternoon. >> after eight years, some of those years in which we did not have, i think, either the resources or the strategy to get the job done, it is my intention to finish the job. >> finish the job. make no mistake, this is just one more mess that president obama has to mop up after the bush administration. bush was the president who drained resources from afghanistan so we could go invade iraq on that perfect intelligence. bush never got bin laden dead or alive. bush never established a functional government over there in afghanistan. bush never eliminated the taliban. thanks a lot. so let's get out of magic wand and wave it now because here comes president obama and he's just expected to solve all of these problems in afghanistan. well, it isn't going to be easy. the country is split right down the middle when it comes to a troop increase. in the latest cnn poll, 50% support an increase. 49% are against it. so, no matter what president obama does, half the country's going to be bad mouthing him. president obama had one hell of an
that put barack obama in office, they're now stepping up saying they're willing to work against those who fight the public option. manage that. >> well, look, i mean, you have to get a bill through and it has to be a good bill. that's why i have always been in favor of reconciliation. i said that months ago, because the people need to vote on this. if you put this up to a fair vote, you would have this pass in a moment. the bill -- by the way, i think harry reid has done a fantastic job. sensational job in getting a decent bill -- >> nobody else has gotten it this far in 50 years. >> he's been fantastic. of course, a lot of people helping him. you know, the problem is because of the actions, the potential actions, i don't think these folks are all going to vote against the consideration of the bill. >> dr. dean, great to have you with us tonight. got to have you back. >>> let me bring in katrina vanden heuvel, editor of "the nation." thanks for your time. it is coming down with war inside the party and the progressive groups. now, the next 30 days, probably legislatively, the most importa
that it's time for a fresh start. >> well, the obama economic team doesn't understand the urgency of now. that's how i see it, because none have ever had to meet payroll. there are no excuses. now that wall street has been given the farm and all the minerals to go with it, when does the clock strike 12:00 for these folks? i agree it's starting to reflect on the president. president obama has stuck with geithner. good loyalty. but the president and his party are going to be judged on job numbers that aren't good. there is no denying that geithner has failed to deliver on that front. he claims to have saved the economy from a complete collapse. no, the taxpayers saved the economy from complete collapse. we went along with all of this. geithner basically saved aig. i don't think the democrats are willing to lose the majority over the ineptitude of the treasury secretary. how many congressman in the house do you think would go along with geithner's remove natural >> when you mention geithner or larry summers, there is -- there are boos and cries of derision. i think there's a growing consens
on this, and this is the political opening and this is where obama is so good, where he can get out and explain what the playing field is all about. but down the stretch here, do you think there is any way when we get into conference committee, like tom harkin is going to be able to strengthen the public option? nancy pelosi is going to be in there. staunch supporters in this? it might turn out to be a heck of a lot better. if i'm a republican, i'm nervous about this thing. what do you think? >> i think you're right. i think harkin and our friends there, sherod brown. harry reid deserves a medal of honor for fighting for americans right now and we've got momentum and don't let anybody tell you otherwise. people don't want their premiums raised, their homes foreclosed, credit card rates going up. people are on the side of jimmy city article and george bailey. we're right about the morality. democrats are in a fighting mood in any day since the george bush administration. the people are with us. >> one thing perfectly clear tonight. i have been tough on geithner and we'll talk more ab
of president obama's big speech on afghanistan tomorrow night which will be on msnbc. time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york tonight. well, it's the story everybody's talking about. the president can go all over the world, but we're not really sure if he's going to be safe in his own home. the crashing of president obama's first state dinner could have been a disaster. white house press secretary robert gibbs took the heat today. >> the focus of the investigation at this point is on the fact that the name wasn't on the list, that name wasn't waved in, but that couple got into the white house and i think that's what the secret service is rightly focused on. i'm simply reiterating for the three questions i got on the same subject what the u.s. secret service put out on this. the president has faith in the secret service, always has, and that's not about to change. >> okay. it brings the definition of an open-door policy to a new level, doesn't it? fortunately it turns out to be a major embarrassment to the president's securi
-american. you've already suspected barack obama. are there others? >> what i would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. i wish they would. i wish the american media would take a great look at the views of the people in congress and find out if they're pro-america or antiamerica. i think people would love to see that. >> and that put michele bachmann on the national scene. she's become a regular on our psycho talk, but she is a political force to be reckoned with. she knows how to bring in the cash. i'm going to talk to the author of the city pages profile. he says her strategy is simple. first, say something really outlandish. spectacularly insane. then, the fact-checkers get into action. next, the republican party frames her as a victim of the liberal media, and then of course, conservative wallets open up and the money just pours in. who do you want to go against? who would you rather see on the republican ticket of 2012? michele bachmann or sarah palin? text a for bachmann and 2 for palin. joining me now is matt schneiders, who wrote the story. you can
